Do you care about the fall season?

August

Much better than the last two seasons. It ain't over yet either y'know.
For all effects it is, who cares about the fall season anyway. :rolleyes:

Well, do you care about the fall season? In some ways, the season is over for me after USO. Excluding February/March, all other parts of season lead to a slam. But the fall season leads only to WTF. Of course, there's still one of my favourite parts of the season, the indoor swing, but the Asian swing really doesn't interest. The only interesting things are who will be year-end World No. 1 and which country will win DC.

I do, I love watching tennis, no matter which part of the season, so I also watch the fall tournaments. There is still WTF, which is, for me always exciting.
Davis Cup actually interest me less, cause I don't feel a strong affection with a country in particular and Belgium never makes it to the (semi-)final anyway.

Why not. It doesn't have a slam at the end of it, but the race for YE #1 is closer than usual, so it should add extra drama (perhaps) :)

I love the indoor season .its one of my favourate times of the year .Asian swing is also awesome where we get to see tennis at a good hour and not very early or late like in US or Australia .But Indoors part is a part I always look too .We get some great tennis and the qualification for WTF is always a fun thing to watch

Yeah I like the indoor seasons. Is different to the constant outdoor hard courts we have to see all the time.

Preferably there should be an indoor slam and then the calendar can be fair to all sorts of players:

Aus open- Outdoor har- Medium/slow pace
French Open - Clay - Slow pace
Wimbledon - Grass - Medium/Fast pace
??? - Indoor hard - Fast pace.

Care a lot more than during the boring start of the year/clay season. (your poll is missing an option for those who care more than other parts of the season)


Fall season will decide year end nr1, who goes to the WTF and later WTF ofc - The sixth slam. The fifth is in october (stockholm open)

I don't care any longer. People on this forum can say "you're not a real fan of the sport if you don't care about indoor tennis", but indoor tennis is not really what is was meant to be any longer. It's basically the same old stuff you'll find throughout the rest of the year. It's no longer a distinct part of the season.

I used to enjoy the indoor season, but nowadays it's much of the same as the rest of the season.

Due to the time difference, the Asian swing is hard to follow for me, but of course I care about this part of the season. For some of my boys there are still issues at stake. :D

The indoor season has always been distasteful to me. Somehow I get a icky feeling from tennis all cooped up inside a building. All the people with all their smells. The smell of the building itself and the court. All this I associate with basketball and not tennis.

I like the elements to play a role. I like the feeling of freshness of tennis outdoors and the sound of the racquet hitting the ball in the open air. I pay attention to what goes on, but I don't really watch as much as when tennis is played in the open.

Agreed, Asian swing is at a terrible time for me to watch so I don't have much interest in it, but once the other indoor events in the European time zone start up, I'm watching again.

yes, the proper fall tournaments, such as basel, stockholm, vienna, paris and the Year End Championships

not this cash cow asian swing with dead stadiums and muggy players

for once in a while, the Year End Championship will determine the no 1 player of the year. as it should be

JoWillyTso
09-12-2012, 08:09 PM
There is still decent tennis to watch but obviously no slams. Although world no.1 is up for grabs. Djokovic and Federer will probably fight it out for that spot and an outside shot for Murray. Murray's best chance is start of 2013 until Wimbledon when he has hardly any points to defend.

I mean it matter sure, but at this point in the season we've passed the biggest events. for me at the very end things get exciting again with Paris and the World Tour Finals and whatnot. obviously the Asian swing is a bit poor, who really cares who wins Tokyo, Bejinng, SHanghai :o

Yeah, the Asian swing is fine for my timezone (the only reason I can think of for missing Tennis action). I usually enjoy the quality of Tennis during the Asian swing regardless of who is playing, and Tennis is the greatest sport mankind has created, so missing any of it would be pretty silly IMO.

I like the Asian Swing because it's easier to watch tennis from 10pm to 3am then go to bed, instead of getting up at 3 am to watch. And I also like indoor, so after the Asian, it's all indoor, awesome.

EddieNero
09-12-2012, 10:46 PM
Great part of the season from my point of view. Most of the tournaments are held indoors on relatively fast courts thus it favours offensive-minded players and is very enjoyable to watch.
Additionally Top 3 usually skips this swing so which gives lower-ranked players an opportunity to grab some bigger titles.

WTF are also a fine resume hosting Top 8 players of the particular season.

Autumn is a great time to watch WTA - if you are in charge of indoor tournaments' air conditioning system. Set the temp to 30C and watch the girls sweat :drool:

If you mean real tennis, then it's over right after USO. Noserer can win all the basel and luxembourg titles he wants, nobody but the Fedtards will care anyway :zzz:

Now you know how I feel when I try to follow American tournaments. The USO lost me so much life. :sobbing:

To answer the question, obviously I care. Shanghai is a shit Masters, but it's still a Masters tournament so it's still fun to watch. It's fun to follow the smaller tournaments too and watch guys you don't normally see. And of course, the World Tour Finals. :hearts:

Yes, I remember you aren`t one of Rafa`s fans. :lol: By the way I think once Nadal retires clay season can again become maybe the most intresting part of the year. Especially if we get new kuertens, corias and ferreros around. Nadal killed any hope of rebellion during spring, but till 2005 I think big clay tournaments were the most intresting for a few years. :shrug: Only on clay some angles in rallies are possible, stable drop-shot play etc.
